Please consider joining us for one or both of these events.
Call for Papers for THE ART OF GENDER IN EVERYDAY LIFE IX
A multidisciplinary conference, The Art of Gender in Everyday Life IX, will take place at Idaho State University on Wednesday, March 7 through Friday, March 9, 2012.
Gender is not a given. Its meaning and significance are constantly in flux.
This conference will explore the various ways in which gender is crafted, celebrated, endured, deciphered, expressed or, in short, the art of how it is lived on a daily basis.
The conference will include, in addition to other gender-related events and workshops: a keynote address on Friday evening by Stephanie Coontz, Professor of History and Family Studies at The Evergreen State College, Olympia WA; a Friday lunchtime talk by an ISU faculty member; and a screening of LUNAFEST.
A formal call for papers, an announcement of our student paper competition, and a registration form can be found on our website at http://www.isu.edu/andersoncenter. Abstracts must be postmarked by Tuesday, November 1, 2011.
Call for Artists for MAMA SAID: The Artworks and Artifacts of Wise Women
Whether your mama, like the Shirelles’ moms, warned you that there’d be days like this, or whether she, like LL Cool J’s mom, advised you to knock out your competition, we’re sure that she had some wise words for you. During Women’s History Month 2012, we invite you to help us celebrate the wisdom that your mama (or other woman you admire) shared with you. Tell us her story and send us a visual representation (artwork – hers or yours; an object, piece of clothing or other possession of hers; etc.) that we can display.
The Women’s History Month (WHM) Committee at Idaho State University (ISU) is calling for submissions for MAMA SAID: The Artworks and Artifacts of Wise Women to be on exhibit at the Transition Gallery on the ISU campus, February 27 - March 10, 2012, in recognition of National Women's History Month.
A formal call for artists can be found on our website at http://www.isu.edu/andersoncenter.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: January 9, 2012
